Review: Unsettled by S.C. Ellington

unsettledReviewed by Shelly

Had I known this is a part 1 in the story of Brooklyn Caldwell and Logan Colton, I probably wouldn’t have read it, but I didn’t… so I did. S.C. Ellington is a new to me author and although I liked the story well enough, I have a little point I have to make before I go on. I don’t give a rats behind about the name brand on clothes, cars, etc. In fact, telling me that the shoes are Sam Edelman’s instead of just black strappy heels just removes me from the flow. I don’t need to know that the SUV you’re driving is a Range Rover – just tell me it’s an SUV. Repeatedly telling me brands places too much emphasis on the material items on not enough on the characters and the situation they’re in. I think authors who do that are actually limiting themselves, because unless you’re going to have multiple versions of the same book, there are people in this great world of ours who will have no idea what those brands equate to. I’ve read this in a few other stories, usually when the characters are early to mid-20s. I didn’t like it then and I still don’t like it. But I digress. [Read more…]
